WALZER-MOSKOVIC, Alejandra. Tattoo: Between Archaism and Fashion?. Aisthesis [online]. 2019, n.65, pp.95-114. ISSN 0718-7181.

This essay deals with a contemporary issue, but with echoes in the past. Indeed, tattoos we see today on the bodies exhibited in the streets and on screens belong both to the most recent everydayness–that participates in a furore that some link to the phenomena of fashion in mass society–as to a record that could be named as archaic since it refers to practices for centuries associated with contexts which are distant to the large industrialized cities. Placing tattoos between archaism and fashion is a working hypothesis to be addressed by a theoretical analysis and also through some testimonies obtained in interviews with tattooed people and tattoo artists.

Palabras clave : contemporary tattoo; archaism; fashion; identity; body image.
